Danilo Pereira was paid homage for his 25 caps for the national team, before the friendly that ended with a Portuguese victory over Saudi Arabia, 3-0. The distinction was handed by Humberto Coelho, vice-president of the Federação Portuguesa de Futebol.

The blue and white midfielder was in the starting team, having been replaced on minute 75, by Rúben Neves, a former Dragon, in a match played this Friday night, at Estádio do Fontelo, in Viseu, which also counted on the participation of Ricardo Pereira. The right fullback, who reached his third cap for the main Portuguese team, went in after halftime to replace João Cancelo.
